DescriptionThese samples (14303 and 14304) are pieces of a football-size rock collected from a location 80 m NNW of the LM during EVA 1. This rock was almost completely buried in the regolith and its orientation is unknown. Both of these samples have freshly broken surfaces. They were first identified as pieces of the same rock in March, 1977, when the models of the rock were found to fit together along their freshly broken surfaces. They share a common lithology which is especially evident along the broken surfaces. These samples were returned together in weigh bag 1027 which also contained samples 14305/302 and various smaller chips (see Phinney et al., 1975). These samples were examined in the CRA and NNPL by the PET, and 14303 was extensively distributed for scientific experimentation. Sample 14304 has been designated a posterity sample.
